Filmed in a single day on June 26, 1977 in multiple locations throughout the country, this tremendous time capsule captures a variety of Pride parades across the landscape of American and offers an overview of the issues facing the community. In response to the San Francisco Hillsborough slaying and Florida’s repeal of homosexual anti-defamation legislation, record numbers of protesters took to the streets across the country in peaceful Gay Day Parade protests.  A myriad of camera operators and interviewers mobilized in New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, and the footage was lovingly compiled and edited together by Arthur J. Bressan Jr. (Buddies), creating a kaleidoscopic portrait that continues to prove why celebrating our collective pride, and expressing it to the world, still matters. A Frameline release
